Your ports tree seems to be out of whack. Do you actually do portsnap update 
after fetch? There's no more ghostscript-{licensetype} ports, only 
ghostscript7 and 8, with -nox11 and font variants.

I would suggest deleting ghostscript-* from your system, check /etc/make.conf, 
pkgtools.conf and your environment variables for anything GHOSTSCRIPT_* and 
remove those.

The run dependencies for libspectre should read:
make -C /usr/ports/print/libspectre/ -V RUN_DEPENDS
  /usr/local/etc/mtree/BSD.gnome.dist:/usr/ports/misc/gnomehier  
gs:/usr/ports/print/ghostscript8
